Faked it, made it.

We took a train to the east side of the city this weekend and I brought my camera along for good measure. Here’s the new street art that I spotted around Brick Lane. Just a short post today.  I’ll be putting up something more substantial at the end of the week. I realise that I…

Street art gallery – Berlin edition

Herself and I are just back from a four day trip to Berlin and while I will save the details of the excursion (and my thoughts about the city) to another post, I am eager to show you some of the street art that we spotted in this most unusual of European capitals.  It took most of our Saturday…

Never use a long word where a short one will do.

When I first started photographing the street art around London two years ago, I had no idea that I would amass such a huge collection of pictures and artifacts – If I was one for overblown hyperbole, I’d almost describe it as pantagruelian (but I’m not, so I won’t). I have nearly used three quarters…

The best way to predict the future

I was only working for three days this week, so – once more – I have very little to show for myself. Anyway, here are the travel notices that I saw this week. You can now follow my adventures on Instagram here.

Do what you can

Herself is in Greece, so I’m home alone for the next week until I join her over there for Greek Easter. I’ll have to find something to keep myself occupied for the weekend, though I fear my efforts may amount to little more that sitting on the couch and watching Sergei Bondarchuk’s incredible 8 hour…

Everybody needs a hobby

Sometimes beautiful, often puerile, but always interesting, I have been photographing the street-art around London for a couple of years now and I’m constantly surprised by the ingenuity and originality shown by artists across the city. We went to Brick Lane at the weekend and I decided to use the visit as an opportunity to…

Just checking in on you

It’s been a fine week for street-art in Camden. I saw these new pieces while out for lunch.  I wish I could write more, but I’m a little up against it this afternoon, so I’ll just leave them here to your own tender mercies. For more street-art and other strange things, you can follow me…

Things not seen everyday

It looks like I have now arrived at the point at which it is impossible to go for a even short stroll through Camden Town without finding at least a few new street art piece worthy of capture. I see new works everywhere, and this afternoon was no different. A particular highlight to the afternoon…

Making good use of a lemon

I broke my spectacles yesterday evening (which was bad). Luckily there is an optician near my work (which is good). I took the glasses to get fixed and was told I’d have to wait an hour for the repair (which was bad). I decided to go for a walk to kill the time and was…

This week in travel notices

Some regular visitors may recall that the workers at my local train station left a small conundrum on the travel notice board for commuters to try and solve last weekend. Unfortunately, they forgot to answer their own riddle and no solution was ever provided. However, after a small Google search I found that the answer…

The week in London Travel (Valentine’s Special)

In addition to the notice board actually featuring practical travel information, the theme this week was love. Somebody at the station, it seems, is somewhat of an old-fashioned romantic. Enjoy.

The Good, The Bad and the Other Ones

I had a little time to kill this afternoon, so I went for a wander around Camden in search of new street art. Sure enough I found this bold new piece by Tony Boy near Camden Mews. Ever hungry for more, I continued on my little adventure and snapped a few more pieces. Wherever possible,…
